Local Ministries

ANGEL TREE/PRISON MINISTRY

Angel Tree provides Christmas gifts to children in our local church area on behalf of their incarcerated parents in the name of Jesus! Angel Tree camp invites kids to attend a week of camp in the summer to enjoy archery, laser tag, swimming, arts, team building and more. The Prison Ministry equips prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families to live a Christ-centered life by offering biblically-based life-skills seminars and workshops within prisons.

ENGLISH AND COFFEE

Church members volunteer as "tutors" to help our international friends practice conversational English in a one-on-one setting using materials based on the Bible. It is a fun way to meet new people, learn more about cultures around the world, and share your own experiences with God. If you know someone who could benefit from the program, or if you would like to know more about becoming a volunteer tutor, please contact us!

FREEDOM ARISE (Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry) 

Freedom Arise is a new ministry birthed from Shepherd's passion to see the end of slavery in our lifetime. As a church, we are partnering with numerous organizations who are already deeply involved in the fight against human trafficking. We believe in the power of collaboration as we all do our part, within and outside the church walls. As a ministry, we are committed to prayer, raising awareness, prevention, and growing the movement to end human trafficking. If you want to be a voice for justice, we have so many opportunities for you to get involved!
